Taking advantage of his day off Ryuzaki departed from Soul Society for the first time since he'd arrived and headed back to the living realm. Karakura city's park to be precise, the place he'd spent much of his youth, and a place that still very much stuck out in his memory. Soul Society was nice and everything, but it just wasn't what he was used to. Everything there was crafted out of reishi, and to him it just didn't feel the same, nothing felt as... real. With all of the hard work he'd put in recently it felt nice to be able to relax completely, and where better to do that than the park? When he first arrived he felt compelled to walk the trails once more, as he had so many times before in his youth, and so he indulged himself. He knew that some of the trails ventured deep into forested area, and covered rather difficult terrain, requiring the walker to ascend and descend multiple hills, slosh through small streams, and occasionally cut through thickets of thorns and closely knit shrubbery. Today he felt like doing none of that, so he took the most relaxing and peaceful trail he could remember. One that kept mostly to the edges of the forest, but that still had some of the most interesting and breathtaking scenery he had ever witnessed strewn along it. When eventually he was satisfied and felt the urge to walk the trails no more he slowly made his way to the lake. He'd spent time swimming here in his youth but that wasn't what he truly appreciated about this place. No, the main reason he came here was to sit beneath the old tree that sat near the shore and simply watch the goings on. It had always been a nice place to sit and think over any matters that were currently troubling him, and it gave him a sense of comfort. As he approached he could see a few other people in various positions around the lake, he could see a couple canoeing about halfway across the lake, and a young boy was playing fetch with his dog. Sitting himself beneath the tree Ryuzaki sighed and interlaced his hands behind his head. It was pleasant to be back among his childhood memories, the feeling of nostalgia overtook him, and he closed his eyes beginning to daydream. In just a short time he could feel himself nodding off, and embraced a light sleep.
